In our collection field we grow currently
We are an innovative start-up registered in the Italian Register of Innovative Start-ups and a research center of Mediterranean biodiversity. Together with our science partners and our “sponsors” we are developing the largest vegetables collection fields of Sicily. Our aim is to evaluate and to validate seeds of traditional vegetables species for the organic farming sector. We aim to realize in Italy an agro-ecological model that proposes the central position of farming in a urban context.
Our 20 ha of fields extend from 6 to 104 metres above sea level. A landscape unique in the world because unchanged since thousands of years, a rural landscape defined by Pirandello as “a wood of olive and almond trees”. Thanks to its fertility and to its geomorphological features it was one of the first human settlements in Italy about 10.000 years ago where they gave birth to agriculture. Nowadays each year more than 1 million of visitors are attracted by the Greek temples and captivated by this Mediterranean landscape that enchant travellers worldwide since ages.
